|Ludwig van Beethoven 1770-1827|
"It was impossible for me to leave the world before I had composed all that I felt needed to produce" -- Beethoven
The last good influence on Beethoven’s father, Beethoven’s mother, was removed when she died. Beethoven’s father began drinking. The situation got so bad that Beethoven had to go to his father’s employer to demand and receive half of his father’s salary so that he could provide for his two younger brother and one-year old sister. In 1972 his father died. Ludwig had to provide for his family for four years. In 1792, a composer named Joseph Haydn passes through Bonn on his way to Vienna. Haydn was impressed by Beethoven’s work but felt his talents needed to be controlled before they could be developed. Beethoven left Bonn and moved to Vienna to study composition with Haydn. Haydn found that Beethoven was advancing along the same path that he did as a youth. Beethoven realized that Haydn was not the teacher he was looking for he moved. He made enemies with many pianists, but his on skill is what got him recognition during his twenties. His first concert was on April 2, 1800.
